cinco de mayo party ideas

Around Cinco de Mayo timeĀ each year I can hear the sounds of La Cucuracha playing in my head. I don’t know any of the words or the tune except the one part, “La cucuracha, la cucuracha…” The rest just ends up sounding like, “la la la la la la la la.” I grew up in… Continue reading cinco de mayo party ideas

Today is Good Friday. We watched The Passion of the Christ last night as we prepared to meditate throughout this day on the sacrifice our Lord Jesus made on the cross. I am freshly riveted and sobered by His great love and His overwhelming death and resurrection. My perspective on what’s truly important has been… Continue reading easter centerpiece round-up

happy st. patty’s day printables

Top-o-the-mornin’ to you! Because of the western fascination with leprechauns and luck on this green-laden holiday, you may not realize that St. Patrick’s Day was actually established to commemorate the life of St. Patrick and the arrival of Christianity to Ireland.

I’m Irish. At least partly. I think I’m also Scottish, English and German as well, so not exactly a full blooded lassy! Nonetheless, I can remember many a St. Patty’s Day when my mom would cook up a savory meal for this green barraged holiday, complete with corn beef, cabbage and potatoes. I didn’t much… Continue reading st. patrick’s day printables
